Remember that it is not merely desire for office and wealth which makes men abject and subservient to others, but desire also for peace, and leisure, and travel, and scholarship. For it makes no difference what the external object be, the value you set upon it makes you subservient to another.
— Epictetus, Discourses

It's the desire for "peace, and leisure, and travel, and scholarship." that got me where I am today, wherein I have only a minimal quantity of time for some of those, and none for most.
I think I need to be reevaluating more than just my relationships, and start looking at the whole picture.
